Since the Raspberry Pi was introduced in 2012
, it has taken the world by storm, revolutionising the fields of electronics education, project development and rapid prototyping. Now the Raspberry Pi is ready to embrace the Internet of Things
with the addition of the EnOcean Pi and EnOcean Sensor accessories.
EnOcean Pi is a wireless module which connects to batteryless EnOcean modules that are powered by energy converters that use mechanical motion, light or temperature differences as an energy source. This allows for maintenance-free sensor and actuator solutions that provide the necessary data for intelligent control.
Developers and OEMs can easily design low-cost gateways for embedded Internet of Things applications, such as smart home solutions. Instead of developing new products from scratch, developers can use the EnOcean Pi and Raspberry Pi to create a ready-made smart home box, which can process and visualise data from batteryless wireless sensors and provide central control of a wireless connected house. Other applications are gateways for cloud services or low-cost building automation with an interface to all EnOcean-based solutions.
EnOcean Sensor Pack
Accompanying the EnOcean Pi, we have included the EnOcean Sensor Pack - the products enclosed include -
- A temperature sensor
- A wireless switch
- A contact sensor
What We're Looking For
For this RoadTest, we will look particularly favourably on applications that describe their Internet of Things
project ideas which will utilise this kit. We will encourage successful testers to blog about their projects on element14's Internet of Things
Terms & Conditions
- Testers will be selected on the basis of quality of applications: we expect a full and complete description of why you want to test these products.
- Testers are required to produce a full, comprehensive and well thought out review within 2 months of receipt of the products.
- Failure to provide this review within the above timescale will result in the enrolee being excluded from future Road Tests.
